Summit County arts & entertainment briefs

The small and artsy Speakeasy Movie Theatre, 103 S. Harris St. in Breckenridge, reopens for the season tonight with “Flight” starring two-time Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington. “This plays like a good old-fashioned drama – a morality play that questions the role of fate, choice and God,” Karin Litzmann writes. “It’s a courtroom drama and a sad love story; it’s nail-bitingly suspenseful, emotionally intense and the plane crash scenes are among the best ever filmed.” Next up, next week is “The Hobbit.” Info: (970) 453-7243.
Harmony Health Massage continues its free winter wellness series (donations accepted for local charity) tonight at 7:30 p.m. with a workshop by Inanna Hall on Sai Maa Diksha, a hands-on technique centering on the flow of light that is geared toward accelerating awakening. On Monday at 7:30 p.m., Cynthia Gardener O’Neill presents a series of true stories “that will radically shift the way you look at health and disease forever.” To register or find out about additional workshops (held Mondays and Fridays), visit www.HarmonyHealthMassage.com. Events take place at Meta Yoga Studios, 118 S. Ridge St. (upper level) in Breckenridge.

The Backstage Theatre KidsPlay program presents two free workshops for children ages 7-14.
